Best of 2019 – skincare


Balea Cleansing Oil

Last time I wrote about my favorites in skincare (2 years ago), I said I liked the L’Occitane Immortelle Huile Demaquillante but I will continue my quest for a better cleansing oil. And so I got to find the Balea one. It is 10 times cheaper and just as effective. Plus, for me, it is really easy to find. I like that it removes makeup and sunscreen pretty well, it doesn’t clog my vision or my pores. Plus its ingredients are good.

Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Face Wash

I am not very picky with cleansing gels and this one checks all the boxes for me: it has good ingredients, no scent, cleans the cleansing oil residue without leaving my face feeling tight and leaves no film behind.

CeraVe Reparative Hand Cream

This fall my boyfriend got extremely dry hand. They were so dry that his skin cracked and his knuckles were bleeding. He asked me for a hand cream and I gave him the one I was using at the time, which contained perfume, and he instantly had to wash it off because the stinging was that bad. I immediately realized I have no hand cream in the house which doesn’t contain perfume. After that, I gave him my face cream which is CeraVe Facial Moisturising Lotion. It doesn’t contain alcohol or perfume and it did help the situation.

Best of 2017 – skincare

Versiunea în limba română a acestui articol o găsiți aici.

I heard about Korean skincare products for a long time but I always felt so lost when I wanted to try something from them. But 2017 was the year where I started digging around the Internet and discovered the beautiful effects of Korean skincare routine.

I will mention the products in the order I’m using them in my skincare routine and when I’m using them (evening or morning). You will notice I have no face cream on this list and that’s because I didn’t find one this year to really impress me.

My skin type: normal skin with oily T zone + melsama around the eyes (problem appeared about 2 years ago).

BEST OF 2017 – îngijirea feței

The english version of this article can be found here.

Am auzit despre produsele coreene de îngrijire a pielii de ceva vreme deja, dar mereu m-am simțit pierdută când am vrut să încerc ceva de la ei. Dar anul 2017 a fost anul în care am început să sap pe Internet și am descoperit efectele deosebite ale rutinei coreene.

Voi menționa produsele în ordinea în care le folosesc în rutina mea și, de asemenea, când le folosesc (seara sau dimineața). Veți observa că nu am o cremă de față pe această listă și asta pentru că nu am găsit una care să mă impresioneze cu adevărat anul acesta.

Tip de piele: normală cu zona T uleioasă + melsama în jurul ochilor (problemă apărută aproximativ acum 2 ani).

essie spa many many mani intensive hand lotion (20ml)

I got it in travel size with an essie base coat. At first I liked it a lot, but for the winter I found it so annoying. It didn’t hydrate as much as I would have liked and you can’t apply 2 layers of it because it starts to ball on your skin.

Repurchase: no.
